Reclaim our cities from the SUV army – Financial Times
These tanks of the urban road are environmentally harmful and entirely unnecessary
Henry Mance 16/4/21
The pandemic has given us a chance to reclaim outdoor space, with cafés spilling on to pavements. Why is so much of our cities dedicated to cars?
Finally, spring is here. The sun is out. The pubs are open. The cars are . . . absolutely huge?
Seriously, did I shrink in lockdown, or did the vehicles get bigger? Amid London’s cherry blossom, the SUVs have taken over. They patrol the roads like an occupying army. Whose tanks are these? It’s the school run, not the Battle of Kursk.
